CMOS vs CCD sensors

I was at a Inkley's (Ritz) store today and looked at two fairly hot DSLR's. The Nikon D70 and the Canon 20D. The salesperson I spoke to was all over the D70 as being a better picture taker than the 20D. One big reason he indicated was the fact that the D70 uses a CCD image sensor while the 20D uses a CMOS sensor.

Now I am one, who at times, tends to over analys things and I am wondering if there is any truth to what he said?
Your sharing of knowledge is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Lon
